If a friend of yours was thinking of moving to this city or town from far away, what other advice would you give them.

Make language acquistion a high priority--but not over taking care of you family's needs! If you know nothing about Mexican culture, working with a Mexican professional language tutor can really help you learn the culture at the same time. Be prepared that adjusting to a foreign environment can be very difficult--usually more so for spouses (typically SAHM) and takes up to 3 years to begin to feel a part of the community.
